The Act II of VALORANT has just started a few days ago, and the popularity of Riot’s competitive shooter is undoubtedly skyrocketing with all the new features that patch 1.05 has brought to the game. Other than the new German agent Killjoy, the new patch introduced the much-anticipated Deathmatch mode to the first-person shooter along with a new ranking system which is set to revamp the competitive experience of the players.
Within a week of the release of Act II, Riot devs have made another blog post on their website where they mentioned some of their future plans for the game while answering some questions of the players themselves.
The first and perhaps the biggest announcement might be the possibility of an option to toggle skin levels in the future. For a long time now, players of the game have been complaining about how distracting the special effects of weapon skins can be. “While the aesthetics of the skins are pretty nice, all the effects around them can be distracting,” the blog said.
To combat this issue, Riot is planning to enable an option for players to toggle between the levels of a skin they already own. “This way, if you own a Level 4 Elderflame Operator, you can still toggle down to Levels 1-3, rather than being stuck only using Level 4.” Riot has mentioned that a system like this will take some time to build, but it might be a possibility in the future.
Another major announcement they delivered is that Agent-specific keybinds for abilities will soon be added to the game. “Agent-specific keybinds are very high on our priority list and we’ve already started work on the feature,”Jason Falcone – Principal UX Designer of VALORANT- said in the blog. “Exact patch timing is still unknown, but it’s something we want to deliver to players ASAP.”
